Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Darynda Jones comes a new story in her Charley Davidson series...

The job should have been easy. 

Get in. Assess the situation. Get out. But for veteran tracker Quentin Rutherford, things get sticky when the girl he’s loved since puberty shows up, conducting her own investigation into the strange occurrences of the small, New Mexico town. He knew it would be a risk coming back to the area, but he had no idea Amber Kowalski had become a bona fide PI, investigating things that go bump in the night. He shouldn’t be surprised, however. She can see through the dead as clearly as he can. The real question is, can she see through him? 

But is anything that’s worth it ever easy?

To say that Amber is shocked to see her childhood crush would be the understatement of her fragile second life. One look at him tells her everything she needs to know. He’s changed. So drastically she barely recognizes him. He is savage now, a hardened - in all the right places - demon hunter, and she is simply the awkward, lovestruck girl he left behind.

But she doesn’t have time to dwell on the past. A supernatural entity has set up shop, and it’s up to them to stop it before it kills again.

While thousands of questions burn inside her, she has to put her concern over him, over what he’s become, aside for now. Because he’s about to learn one, undeniable fact: she’s changed, too.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new listeners, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Critic Reviews

“Narrator Lorelei King provides an entertaining and skilled performance of this audiobook…. King keeps listeners' attention throughout the fast-paced story. She expertly switches between the various characters' unique voices. Though this is only a taste of the series, King's narration will entice listeners to order the full meal.” AudioFile Magazine

Disappointed :(

I was so hoping that this story would continue to move the series towards Beep & Osh. I didn’t even feel like I knew the Quintin & Amber characters. As always though, Lorelei King was fabulous.

Q&A investigation is all grown up!!!

I have been listening to the Charley Davidson books for years. Darynda Jones has become one of my favorite authors! It was great to hear what happened to Quentin and Amber when they grew up. I hope this isn't the last we hear from them.

disappointed

I've devoured all things Charlie Davidson, but I couldn't make it through this one. The story is one-note and Amber and Quentin have grown away from the characters we met in the series. It's so stand-alone that, without the big story of BEP and the gang propping it up, this story collapses. The other 1001 Nights story was ok, and I will give the third a whirl. Lorelei King is, as always, fantastic at giving everyone their voice.

Such an imagination! That’s our DARYNDA🥰😇🧟‍♀️

Darynda does it again and brings back Quinton and Amber. Their love got so messed up sometimes being supernatural is no fun at all! This quirky storyline gets them back together them back the demon way, OH My 🧟‍♀️!

Quite a delight

Love having this glimpse into a grownup Amber and Quinton world!! This brief paranormal mystery is so worth the time of Charlie Davidson series fans and those that have not been introduced to this world (you are so missing out)! The narrator did a great job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.

this is a great story about Quentin and Amber and

this is a great story but compliments the Charley Davidson series and further dwells in to Amber and quinton's affair.
